GitHub Pull Requests

Auto-advance cards to different columns, check the PR status, check build status, and more with Glo's integration with GitHub pull requests.

Benefits

  • Automatically move Glo cards to target column based off pull request status changes
  • Check status (open/closed/merged) of pull requests inside a Glo card
  • Check build status (state/description/context) of pull requests inside a Glo card
  • Link Glo cards from a Pull Request description

Note: Pull Request linking and automation may work on Glo Boards that are synced with GitHub Issues, but is a separate feature and requires additional set-up.


Connect to GitHub

Navigate to gear in upper right, select Pull Requests and then select the repo(s) to connect to Glo. This action will create webhooks in the selected GitHub repo(s) that send Glo information when Pull Requests are created and updated.

Click the button, login to GitHub, and authorize Glo in a method similar to syncing GitHub Issues.

Once you have selected the repo(s), you may then map certain GitHub Pull Request statuses to columns on your board.

Note: You may connect each Glo board to different repositories by opening a different Glo board and repeating the steps above.


Features

Once connected to your GitHub repo(s), you may link Glo cards from the Pull Request panel of a given card.

When a Pull Request status changes, it's linked cards will move to the Glo column associated with the new Pull Request status.

Another note: Try clicking on the repo or PR name in Glo to open the GitHub repo in a broswer tab.

Click the X icon to unlink the Glo card from a pull request.

You may link any number of Glo cards to a Pull Request. To do so from GitHub, edit the pull request description to include a card links.

This will automatically link the Glo card to this Pull Request (assuming setup has been completed first).

View build status

If you have CI/CD integration setup with your GitHub repository, you may also review the build status of a given pull request from a Glo card.
